Super lo-fi print options & the one-sheet folded book as a building block! with Erin Sweeny

April 20, 2013
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Athenæum

Beginning our day with two simple print techniques that can easily be repeated in your home studio, we will make a passel of prints and printed paper. In the afternoon, we will explore a number of simple and versatile one-sheet folded books using our printed matter. We will each choose one structure to develop further, discussing methods to use this simple form as a building block for a more sculptural and developed book structure. Teaching artist Erin Sweeney lives and works in New Hampshire, having completed her MFA in Book Arts and Printmaking at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she was awarded the Elizabeth C. Roberts Prize for Graduate Book Arts. She holds a BFA in sculpture from the Maine College of Art. Her current work combines fibers, text, and the book form.

Please bring: cut mat, exacto knife, ruler, mechanical pencil, bone folder, awl.
